The Porter’s 2nd Anniversary!

The Porter is turning 2! Here’s a great reason to get excited.  THE BEER!  Today, September 11, 2010  The Porter Beer Bar in Little 5 Points here in Atlanta will celebrate with an awesome tap lineup.

Quick backstory on The Porter

Molly Gunn and husband Nick have a love of good beer. Having been to various great beer bars around the country (and working in some too!) Molly and Nick decided it was time to start one themselves. After spotting a empty location in little 5 Points and signing a lease, they got to work. The goal, a bar with great beer and great food. One year later, I would have to say they have accomplished that goal.

Here’s the list!

Founder’s  Kentucky Breakfast Stout – Imperial Stout, 11.2% ABV.  Coffee, vanilla oak. Amazing

Founder’s Canadian Breakfast Stout – Imperial Stout, 9.4% ABV.  Popular KBS in Maple. RARE!
